Tricky tuba

Still working on the tuba with stuck slides and lots of soldering.  After 3 hours in the chemicals I was able to remove the 2nd slide but the 3rd slide too all the tricks I know including a new technique using moldable plastic and several more days to come out.



Hamilton Cornet project

Just because I decided to take on a Saturday emergency.  Kid needed his grandpa’s horn working for band on Monday.  First time I’ve seen hose clamps to hold a horn together.  Rather clever as there was not adhesive to remove like duct tape or super glue which takes my time and their money.
